Hyderabad: To implement the high court order to retrieve the dead bodies of three Communist Party of India (Maoists) to perform re-post mortem examination, Bhadradri-Kothagudem police have sent different teams of policemen into the interior forest area to bring the dead bodies.
Fearing the risk of Maoists attacking the police, utmost care is being taken by police to reach out the interior places with the support of armed Greyhounds commandos, since there is no proper road connectivity to those tribal villages. The three Maoists who died during exchange of fire were identified as Local Guerrilla Squad (LGS) commander Sodi Jogaiah, 25, a resident of Krishnarampadu of Charla, Dalam member Mandakam Malli, 22, a resident of Chennapuram and LGS member Mandakam Mangi, 24, a resident of Kuknoor in East Godavari of Andhra Pradesh. After the encounter, police handed over the dead bodies to their respective families and they took it to their villages. tnn
